The toll from the Ebola-like Marburg virus in Angola rose with the death of a baby to 122, just one fatality short of the most serious outbreak recorded anywhere, a health ministry spokesman said today. "This baby was the child of a 19-year-old woman who died on Sunday morning and the baby died the same evening," said Carlos Alberto, adding that the death was recorded in the northern town of Uige, the epicentre of the epidemic. The most serious recorded outbreak of the disease was in the Democratic Republic of Congo between 1998 and 2000, when 123 people died.
